Come Away Melinda - Lyrics by UFO

Daddy daddy, come and look, (come and) see what I have found
A little ways away from here, while digging in the ground
Come away melinda, come in and close the door
That thing's just a picture book they had before the war.
Daddy daddy, come and see, daddy, hurry, do!(why) there's someone in a (party/pretty) dress and she's all grown up just like you(wont' you tell me why)
Come away melinda, come in and close the door(that) someone is your mommy, you had before the war.
Daddy daddy tell me (please tell me) if you can
Why things can't be the way they were before this war began? Come away melinda, come in and close the door
The answer lies in yesterday, before they had the war...(instrumental)
